3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 9/30/12 from a waxed and capped 650mL bomber bottle, thanks to Baker for the trade. Pours nearly black, dark brown with an average tan head that slowly recedes to thin, bubbly lace. The nose is straightforward dark roasted coffee and chocolate porter with plenty of vanilla and caramel bourbon. The flavor is very dry with tons of dark chocolate and coffee, finishing with some vanilla, caramel, and milk chocolate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter dark chocolate and vanilla bourbon finish.

What can you say? A truly superlative beer. Chocolate comes right up front in both aroma and taste, slight tingle of alcohol warmth at the finish. Sweet and smooth, chocolate lingers on the tongue. This is one to savor.

Dark glowing brown but unable to be seen through. Huge choco-nut aromas. Big in your face melted dark rich chocolate with a bourbon malt back. Smooth bittersweet richness.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the June 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with faint orange highlights and a large foamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was cookie dough, strong chocolate, marshmallow, toasty malts and marzipan. The flavor was very strong cocoa, vanilla, toasty malts, marzipan and a bit of wood. Long chocolate and toasty malt finish. Thick full and creamy body. Excellent.

One of my favorite beers. Without a doubt the best chocolate stout I’ve had. Has a distinct chocolate taste. Almost like Coco Puffs. Delicious

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jet black with a little brown at bottom. Head leaves lacing. Smell is chocolate oak, booze. Some sips start of chocolate in a moose whipped cream kinda way then a burst of whisky/booze then a little oak taste and a cola like finish. A big burst of hop bitterness and gone as well on some sips. Other sips no oak taste and some warmth. The porter was FREE for me but heard it was around $16 USA for it. Is it really a pricy porter? Not the worst or best porter I had. cheer’s!

Bottle. Nice chocolate aroma with some dark roasted grain, nice full body, mostly sweet taste, and flavors of artificial chocolate, like a tootsie roll or something. Sweet notes from bourbon but no real booze notes.
